What does IVF stand for? It stands for In Vitro Fertilisation and is a type of assisted reproductive technology that helps women become pregnant. One of the first questions people understandably have for IVF in Australia is ‘how much does IVF cost’? Dr Gary Swift’s fertility clinic is associated with the Queensland Fertility Group and they have a website that outlines the fees involved and the options available. You are also welcome to contact our clinic for more information. Another common question is in regards to IVF success rate and in particular  IVF success rate for women over 40.

The Queensland Fertility Group has partner clinics in New South Wales and in Victoria. Collectively they are responsible for more births through IVF treatment than any other clinic group in Australia. Whilst this is positive generic information we want to be honest and real about the outcomes because we are dealing with you and your opportunity to have a family.

We encourage you to work towards making an appointment with Dr Gary Swift who is a leading specialist in reproductive medicine and reproductive surgery. Talking with a specialist will give you access to a professional assessment and start you on the process to discovering what your individual chance of success rate with IVF is based on a number of factors such as your age and your personal reason for infertility.

Other factors that may impact a woman’s ability to have children and give reason to look at the IVF process and IVF treatment would be :

  • Damaged Fallopian Tubes
  • Endometriosis
  • Ovulation Issues
  • Low sperm count and motility

Dr Gary Swift is also a leading surgeon who specialises in laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis. If you would like to see the full list of fertility treatments available through our clinic you can head across to our fertility treatments page.
